Gel Fuel Fireplaces - The Perfect Ventless Fireplace

Nov 20, 2007
If you're looking for a ventless fireplace, one of your best choices is the gel fuel fireplace. Many people don't think about it but recently it has been gaining in popularity within the home decor arena. The reasons for this new found popularity are many. Not the least of which is the many elegant and classic designs that are available. They rival the most elaborate built-in gas or wood burning fireplace you can find.

The gel fuel fireplace can be installed in just a few hours. The only tool you will need is a simple screw driver. There is no complicated assembly process involved. As far as maintenance goes - there is none. Just replace the cans of gel fuel when they run out and you're ready to keep the fires burning. There is no venting or chimneys to mess with, remember these are vent free fireplaces. A lot of people don't appreciate the benefits of these ventless fireplaces. Chimneys have to be inspected and cleaned on a regular basis. Soot and ashes from a wood burning fireplace have to be disposed of. Now you don't have to worry about any of that.

The gel fuel fireplace is good for the health of your family and your home. Burning gel fuel consumes little energy and emits no toxins, or offensive odors. In fact, with the addition of aromatics or incense, your room can be filled with a variety of wonderful fragrances or if you prefer, just a faint aroma of burning wood.

A ventless gel fuel fireplace, since it does actually burn, will give off some heat - many times up to 3,000 BTU's. Now this is not going to be used as an alternative heating source, but it sure will give off a warm glow and provide an elegant ambiance. Plus, get the crackling sound of real wood burning when you burn the gel fuel. And it's so simple to enjoy. Just open the cans of gel fuel, light and place them behind the fireplace logs. Many models will handle up to 3 cans at a time allowing you to control the size of the flame. Each can will burn from 2 - 3 hours.

The simplicity of the gel fuel fireplace makes them perfect for apartments, condos mobile homes, dens or offices. In fact, I can't think of any room that wouldn't benefit by the addition of a ventless fireplace. And because they are portable, you can move them from room to room even outside on your patio. I've heard of some cases where people have put them in almost every room of their home including the bathroom. Given how inexpensive they are compared to installing gas fireplaces or a real wood burning fireplace, you can afford to put them just about anyplace you want to create that special effect. Good quality gel fuel fireplaces can start as low as $200 - $250.

It's no wonder the gel fuel fireplace has become the ventless fireplace of choice. With its easy installation and maintenance free operation it's the perfect choice. If you want to add warmth and charm to any room in your home, a ventless gel fuel fireplace is the way to go. It will beautify your home for years to come.
